    Ok I got the PC and it's awesome.It has a 6xcore,8 GB RAM and 500 GB Hard Drive space.Good card and all.I put Skyrim with Ultra settings and it plays amazing.It's really a different experience.I also installed Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Call of Duty World At War and they run like Pacman on a modern computer.

    Bet you're happy now. You'll be able to play all of your games on good graphics. You might just need a big external hard drive.

    Lol - that's pretty awesome. That should keep you awake for a few nights ^^

    The HDD is a bit on the slow side, but don't worry. In a few months, HDD prices will drop - and you will be able to buy a huge upgrade for maybe a fraction of the price :)

    It is isn't it?Although 500 GB are still pretty good in the future I could perhaps get more.I am happy because I can now play all these games that I had for months and I couldn't play them because of the restrictions on my laptop.Games that were very heavy!

    I mean...come on,Skyrim with Ultra settings is just magical!Alien vs Predator Hunter,Dead Rising 2....most of the Call of Duty games that I had and were too heavy to enjoy...like Call of Duty Black Ops,Call of Duty World At War,Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2.....EVEN Battlefield Bad Company 2....and...lots of other games!All with Ultra settings!

    Man it's amazing!I keep taking screenshots to show you guys how well they look with ultra settings!

    You try Metro 2133. It'll choke :p

    The HD 6870 is a right beast, and reasonably priced as well. Friend of mine's got one, showed it at a LAN party recently. It's made me want to have one - though, I'm probably sitting it out and opting for HD 7870, once that's getting in budget ^^

    yeah... that's the one. It's the new Crysis, so to say. No single video card can pass the 60 FPS threshold with settings on ultra.
